It has been a massive week of news for Microsoft fans! Daniel Rubino and Zac Bowden are here to give you the lowdown. Windows 10 October 2018 Update has been released and subsequently pulled due to issues with user files being unintentionally deleted. (Please note that the update was pulled AFTER this episode was recorded.)
In addition, the company held its Surface event — unveiling 4 new products during the presentation: Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2, Surface Studio 2, and Surface Headphones. Separate from the Surface event, Zac reports on his look at Surface Hub 2, and his hands-on experience with its version of Windows Core OS.
HP trades aluminum for leather in their Spectre Folio convertible device. Whether or not it reinvents laptops is debatable, but Daniel does feel it moves things forward. Finally, Daniel and Zac share the most significant announcements from Microsoft Ignite 2018. Check it out!

Despite it being pulled I've had two PCs download the update since Sunday
Could have been queued...
Well you could always going to Disk cleanup and remove it.
I use the media creation tool to update To 1809 had no problem.
I do not know how this work, but could the Surface Headphone be used to mix audio on the Surface Studio 2? The Headphones have USB-C and the Studio 2 have USB-C.
Just want to tell you that your view about Surface Connector will consume PCIe 3.0x4 is wrong
The PR edu ppt THR2304 shows the technical details.
Surface Connect is a physical connector that is symmetrical, magnetically attached and reversible.
The main complaint by MacBook Pro users is the loss of a magnetic attached power supply.
Surface Connect can support products as thin as 4mm.
Surface Connect is mainly used for charging, but 6 high speed data lines are always available and used by our dock.
2 Lanes for USB 3.1 Gen 1
4 Lanes for DP 1.2
Plus USB 2.0
UART communication is used to negotiate special power needs and in some cases manage cable orientation and other advanced features.
Surface Connect chargers range from 24W to 95W, 12V or 15V.
Surface Connect can provide up to 7.5 watts out for accessories.
""""""" The normal Surface Connector only use/have DP lane for the Display output, no PCI-E lane.
So there is no reason that MS doesn't put a TB3 on SP.
Thx for sharing
Microsoft shoots itself in the foot again. a black Surface is nothing to get excited about. Microsoft is such a let down on everything comsumer.
